But in the Klopp era, at least, a key port of call when assessing any center-back transfer target has been prowess in the air.

And while he places pretty well in the data, Liverpool would be justified in feeling it has saved a fortune.

That’s because Van Dijk is not the only Liverpool representative towards the top of the list when it comes to winning aerial duels.

Secondly, just like Colwill, he has spent a lot of the season at full-back, where headed duels might generally be considered harder to win — if the Chelsea starlet was looking to lean on that excuse, his Liverpool counterpart has comprehensively defeated that point.

In joint-sixth, Joël Matip is the third Liverpool representative, winning 73.7 per cent of his aerial duels this season prior to the injury.

Of course, that comes with the caveat that Klopp might not be leaving this gift for his managerial successor, with the 32-year-old’s contract set to expire at the end of the campaign as things stand.

Not to worry, though, because Ibrahima Konaté ranks joint-eighth, winning 73.3 per cent of his aerial battles.

And it is his emergence that truly makes it seem like a good thing Liverpool did not get Colwill.

Quansah and Colwill are separated by less than a month.

While the Chelsea man boasts more senior playing experience, Liverpool has seen very clearly this season that its own homegrown prospect can more than hold his own at the top level, having not really put a foot wrong.

The really great news is that even if Klopp’s successor is not quite so fixated on aerial duels, Quansah has the same well-rounded skill set that made Colwill so appealing.
